Kristin Ess hair water

1. Kristin Ess The One Signature Hair Water, $10
One product that has made my morning routine even more time efficient is Kristin Ess’ Hair Water. This magical product brings life back to second day hair, or creates a more polished look after you style. Either way, my hair routine can’t live without it. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

LC Lauren Conrad drink floaties

2. LC Lauren Conrad Pineapple & Flamingo Floating Drink Holders, $18
Is it really summer without some fun and colorful pool floats? These drink holders are the cutest way to keep your drink afloat when you’re poolside. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief

Outdoor Voices tie back tank

3. Outdoor Voices Tie Tank in Dove, $40
I just bought a couple of new tanks from Outdoor Voices, and this one in particular is my current fave. You can wear it tied or untied (for a looser, flowy fit), but I think it looks especially cute tied up in the back. It’s unbelievably soft, lightweight, and the pretty dove grey goes with everything. –Tessa, Editorial Assistant

LC Lauren Conrad tortoise cat eye sunglasses

4. LC Lauren Conrad Tortoise Cat’s Eye Sunglasses, $18
I originally picked up these sunglasses with the intention of keeping them as a spare in my car for when I forget my more expensive pair. But after seeing just how chic they look I’ve been wearing them non-stop for the past few weeks. I have the black/pink, but now I’m thinking of buying them in the other two colors as well. –Ilana, Managing Editor

Sweet Laurel chocolate chip cookies

5. Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies from the Sweet Laurel Cookbook
I’ve been working my way through our friend Laurel’s cookbook, and my recent obsession comes in the form of her classic chocolate chip cookies. They are incredibly easy to make and so delicious, but my favorite part about them is that, like everything in Laurel’s cookbook, they are grain-free, refined sugar-free and dairy-free. After making several batches, I’ve started to add my own secret ingredient: macadamia nuts. I swap 1/2 cup of the vegan chocolate chips (the recipe calls for 1 cup) for 1/2 cup of chopped macadamia nuts, which adds a little healthy fat and nutty flavor. The end results is so good that I even have one with my morning coffee some days… –Allison, Managing Editor

LA Hearts powder blue bikini

6. LA Hearts Square Neck Bralette Bikini Top, $29.95 and V Front Hipster Bikini Bottom, $22.95
It’s swimsuit season and that means I am most likely going to be purchasing way too many! I’m kicking off summer with this pretty pastel blue bikini and there are so many things that I love about it! First, the color and cut are both so great. I love a more full coverage bikini and this one does the trick, but with fun details like a v-shaped bottom and double straps on the top. My growing swimsuit collection is very happy right now. –Jessi, Senior Editor

anthropologie cityscape dress

7. Lazybones Cityscape Dress, $168
I wore this dress to a wedding last weekend and received so many compliments. From the conversational print to the tiered, ruffled silhouette, it’s a real showstopper! –Ilana, Managing Editor

LC Lauren Conrad firefli sandals

8. LC Lauren Conrad Firefli Women’s Sandals, $14.99
I got at least three pairs of these slides last summer, and I’m still wearing them almost daily a year later! They are the easiest throw-on-and-go sandals, and the simple silhouette makes them perfect for any outfit. If you pick up a pair of these, just do yourself a favor and get them in at least a few colors because you’ll be wearing them nonstop. –Tessa, Editorial Assistant

The Little Market napkin holder

9. The Little Market Napkin Holder, $8
Entertaining during the summer months is my favorite thing to do! My husband and I host weekend BBQs, and I’m always looking for new ways to spruce up my table. These nautical napkin holders from The Little Market are so sweet and add that perfect summertime touch. –Jessi, Senior Editor

10. Happier by Rajiv Dhall
I can’t stop listening to this sweet song by Rajiv Dhall! I’ve been listening to his music for a while now, and have to say that this is his best song yet. His voice is amazing…if you listen once I have a feeling you’ll be listening on repeat, too! –Rachel, Managing Editor
